ched here to-day from Richmond, after a long and tedious journey through the interior of the State. He reports the general impression along his route, and claimed to be founded on reliable information, that large reinforcements for the rebel army would be sent into Western Virginia immediately. They were pressing all the men into the ranks. A report was brought here to-day that ex-Congressman Garnett had superseded Colonel Porterfield in command of the rebel troops, and was then at Huttonsville, about sixty miles from here. It was also rumored that Governor Wise was about strengthening the forces at that point. The truth will probably be ascertained to-morrow. [Gen. R. S. Garnett, and old campaigner, is the officer who probably superseded Gen. Porterfield.] The rumored march on Cumberland, by way of Romney, is ascertained to have been a feint movement, their destination being evidently further West. Colonel Wallace, with the Eleventh Indian Regiment, is still at Cumb
Another skirmish. --The Staunton Spectator, of the 25th inst., says: We have learned from a reliable gentleman of this place, who returned a few days since from our camp at Laurel Hill this side of Phillippi. that on Tuesday night last. one of our scouting parties, numbering 25, met a scanting party of the enemy, numbering about 50, within less than two miles of our camp at Laurel Hill. Both parties fired, and both retreated. None of our men were hurt. A lady being in that neighborhood wrote to a friend in Huttonsville that the enemy buried eight the next morning. Our party retreated because they supposed from what they had learned previously that the scouting party of the enemy consisted of about 800.
ls' fire from the bushes, without calling for a halt or making any attempt to capture. A scout returned to-day, after being two days inside the enemy's pickets. At their advanced camp, near Burlington, 13 miles from Phillippi, he saw five pieces of artillery, and is confident their force is not over 2,000. He learned they expected five regiments--two of South Carolinians, two of Tennesseeans, and one of Virginians, under Wise, to-day. The rebels are still in force at Beverley, Huttonsville, and Cheat Mountain Gap. Our position at Phillippi is splendidly fortified. An attack on one side or the other must come soon. Our troops can hardly be held back. Capt. Benham, of the Engineer Corps, is in command of the Eighth and Tenth Indiana Regiments. It is expected that to-night telegraphic communication with Cumberland will be opened again. Nothing further is known about the loss on either side at the burning of the Piedmont bridge. The rebels there supposed they had
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the Charlotte Troop. Staunton, Saturday, June 29th, 1861. After remaining at the Camp of Instruction at Ashland about a month, the Charlotte Troop received marching orders to Huttonsville. Although we enjoyed many advantages at that place which we cannot have elsewhere, (our friends having visited us almost daily, sent us many boxes of good things, and the officers having been very kind to us,) yet, we received the orders to march with pleasure, knowing that we were needed in another direction for actual service. From Ashland to Staunton we were on the cars twenty-four hours. When we took our horses from the cars they were quite fatigued, not having been fed or watered during the trip. They were soon attended to, and now look much better. We regret the absence of one of our corps, whom we left sick of fever at Ashland, Mr. D. Shepperson. He will be able to join us in a few weeks, however, as he is recovering his strength r
the soldiery and many private citizens, and were it not for their rights guaranteed them by the Constitution, especially as members of Congress, they would probably be, on adjournment, incarcerated in the jail of this city; for there are parties now there who have said less than Phelps, Valiandigham and Burnett will say on the floor of the United States Congress. The Administration expect two grand battles to-day or to-morrow. One between Gen. Wise's and Gen. McClelland's armies at Huttonsville, forty miles from Phillippi; and the other between the forces of Generals Patterson and Johnston, near Martinsburg.

But I believe they have managed to steal a considerable sum from the State proper, which, toge

ne yesterday, the origin of which we could not ascertain, that excited a very lively interest. It was of a victory achieved by General Lee over the enemy.--The rumor at first maintained a currency on the reputed authority of the War Department. Upon applying there we found that there was no truth whatever in it. The Department had received no information of the kind. At last accounts that have reached us Gen. Lee was with a part of the force under his command not far from Huttonsville, in Randolph county. The enemy, or part of the force under Rosencrantz, was between him and that town, the distance between the camps of the opposing forces being eight or ten miles. Up to that time Gen. Lee had moved steadily, and the enemy had been receding before him after he had passed a defensible point on the line between Pocahontas and Randolph. It will be remembered that Rosencrantz endeavored to get possession of that point when he heard the approach of our army; but Gen. Lee got ahead o
axation, and that in this condition they consider the expediency of telegraph and stamp duties, and excise duties upon cotton, tobacco, and all malt, and distilled liquors. On motion of Mr. Cox, it was resolved that the President be requested to communicate to the House what, of any, steps the Executive Department has taken for the systematic exchange of prisoners. Latest from Western Virginia--reported Federal success. Cincinnati, January 8. --A special dispatch from Huttonsville, Va., says that Gen. Milroy's expedition, under Capt. Lacy, in Tucker county, has also dispersed 400 rebels, capturing their Commissary and a large amount of stores; also, a 1st lieutenant and a private. Four rebels were found dead, and a large number wounded. A detachment of the forces was still in hot pursuit of the routed enemy. Further.--The New York Herald, of the 9th instant, has the following later information: Our army in Western Virginia continues active. A brilliant
